Had lunch on a Friday night, very busy, but didn't have to wait for a table. The food was yummy! We had the fried pickles, buffalo burger, shrimp & grits, and the bacon cheeseburger. Everything was delicious! Great beer and wine selection. There was a nice outdoor patio area. Definitely recommended!

The String Bean is definitely one of the best restaurants, if not the best, in Belmont, NC. With that being said, their menu ranges from salads and sandwiches to fresh seafood and butcher market. We come here a lot and have always enjoyed our meals, however, the seafood and meat specials tend to be very pricey so we never go... More

My wife and I visited the String Bean one Saturday night. We decided on indoor seating, and after walking by the cuts of meat and fish, I settled on the trout with eggplant fries. It was all very good, but the fish was $26. They have several other less expensive options that would be equally appealing, including the wrap my... More

First off, the food is very good. Very good. Now the bad news: The parking sucks and the service is slow, I mean real slow. We waited almost 45 minutes for our meal. Luckily there was live entertainment and the waiter was very friendly. Only other complaint: The restrooms, which are the individual type, with a lock on the door... More

We walked in to The String Bean late last night not realizing they were closing within the hour. We were greeted, seated and treated like we were welcome guests without a care for the late hour. The menu is extensive, and our waitress Kat was patient with our questions. Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared. As we were finishing our... More

Quaint little place the downtown area. Had to wait for a table maybe 15 mins. Understand they had a bunch of new people on staff. Food was still great. Wife had the tuna salad, tuna was little overdone but still very tasty. Huge salad. I had the cow pig. Sort of a beef pork burger with a terrific sauce on... More

The food was just ok and when your asked to pay that much it needs to be out of this world. They didn't seem to like to go orders. Like we were a burdened to them.

I ate at SB yesterday afternoon. They had a tasty selection of local beers. I enjoyed a bacon burger. They ground the bacon into the burger...oh so yummy! We sat on the patio which was nice but the chairs were saggy and low.

Went on a Saturday night and after a little mixup for the seating we had a nice outdoor table. Our table of three served by a friendly and sharp server, however some of our choices were out which was a disappointment. Good beer and wine selection and decent fresh food. We'll go again.
